Orange Anise Cookies - Fill the Cookie Jar

This is my first post for a long time and I am glad that I can share this awesome cookie with you. This month's theme for Fill the Cookie Jar is back to school.  I would love to put these in my lunch box and I am sure my hubby would too as he was drooling as he ate them... yep he had more than one.

When thinking of what cookies to make, my thoughts went to orange and cranberry but low and behold, we had no dried cranberries and I was much too lazy to go and buy some more.  So to the cupboard, I went and found the anise... PERFECT!  It worked.  The best cookies to fill the cookie jar with.

Orange and anise flavour in each bite of these melt in your mouth cookies.

1 cup softened butter
2/3 cup sugar
2 cups all- purpose flour
2 tsp orange juice
1 tsp orange peel
1 tsp anise

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy.
Mix in orange juice, orange peel and anise.
Gradually add flour and continue to mix well.
Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a baking mat covered baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 until cookies are golden brown.
Cool on cookie sheet for a couple of minutes on the cookie sheet and then move to a cookie rack to continue to cool.

Try to eat only one!
